Fall Foliage Special“Our grandkids thoroughly enjoyed everything about this little getaway. The train ride was handled like an authentic train ride. The gift shop had reasonable prices for souvenirs.”

“The kids loved it! They had never been on a train before so the experience was excellent. We will definitely be back.”

“Absolutely fantastic experience. We took our 2 year old and 4 month old, both loved every part of it! Wonderful staff, every employee I saw engaged with our kids and had a smile, it was just what we needed right now! It was our first visit and won’t be our last. I can’t recommend them enough.” †
